"Through Hipercon RDC, you no longer have to compromise. We give our clients the ability to have a compressed schedule, high quality slab, all at a low cost."
Hipercon Consulting Engineers, LLC.
Peter Craig, Independent concrete floor authority and Lead Instructor for the ICRI Moisture Testing Certification Program, on Rapid Drying Concrete.
"No longer will project schedules need to be disrupted by extended drying times or to apply a topical moisture and pH suppression system."
Hipercon Consulting Engineers was founded on the premise that concrete issues can have concrete solutions without the need to implement costly and time consuming additional steps to the construction process. These concrete solutions come in the form of High Performance Concrete and is where the name Hipercon is derived from.
At it's current pace, the construction industry is constantly reducing schedules and pushing for faster turnover times. Through this rush, intricate problems have surfaced in the industry as the different architectural divisions do not seemlessly integrate with each other as they should. Our primary goal is to bridge the gap from Division 03 to Division 09 and to provide cost effective and efficient concrete solutions.
RAPID DRYING CONCRETE
An Engineered and Scientific Solution that Conquers Concrete Moisture at its Source
We are specialists in designing Rapid Drying Concrete slabs that target the low internal humidity requirements of modern flooring adhesives.
Industry standards are based on testing via ASTM F2170 for internal Relative Humidity (RH) and F1869 for Moisture Vapor Emission Rate (MVER). Our expertise is centered around meeting your adhesive and flooring requirement in order to maintain your manufacturers warranty. On top of this, we offer an additional warranty against any moisture issues.
We are engineers and scientists who base our designs on years of research and understanding. Throughout our careers, we've been involved in hundreds of rapid drying concrete projects across North America. We are not a 'miracle' silicate-based admixture that claims to block moisture while forcing you to throw out your flooring manufacturer warranty in place of our own. Our goal is to address the issue of moisture, not just mask it. From maximizing primary and secondary hydration through chemical balancing, to material screening and proportioning, we are able to provide our clients with a high quality engineered slab.
These Hipercon RDC slabs inherently posses characteristics of:
High early strength, typically 3000+ psi at 3 days
High end strength, typically 8000+ psi at 28 days
Low drying shrinkage, typically 0.03%
Low curl due to uniform drying with a minimized drying gradient
High workability, pumpability, and finishability
Allows the concrete contractor to achieve a superior finish in terms of smoothness, flatness and levelness.
Low cracking potential
High tensile bond and pullout strength
Through our engineered mix designs and methodical placement strategies, we are able to achieve a superior slab that meets and surpasses your flooring specification!
